UH Daily Cougar Crazed and Confused V


Comments:
I liked "Jarhead"--it's an interesting movie. Did you see it?

It's not as good as "Platoon", "Full Metal Jacket", "Deer Hunter" or "Apocalypse Now", but I liked it better than "Three Kings."
 
Three Kings was terrible. I think George Clooney is partly responsible why Hollywood is losing money at the box office, and I refuse to watch any of his tripe whether it be on the big screen or on DVD.

Stuffing liberalism down American throats at the box office is not a good way to do business. I honestly couldn't tell you the last time I paid to see a movie at the theater. I've since refused to watch any other movie with George Clooney, or any other political leftists, and I think smart thinking America have chosen to as well, as it is showing.

I had lunch this past weekend at the NC with one of my war buddies and we discussed Jarhead. We've both seen the movie. We agreed that it was similar to our experiences we saw in the Gulf. We were disappointed that the trailers showed pretty much all Gulf scenes but most of the movie was about his life prior to Desert Storm.
 
I've seen both of Clooney's movies that he has directed and both were exceptional.

The first one he did, had nothing to do with politics. It was based on a book by the guy who hosted "The Dating Game." It was an interesting movie. It was superior to "Jarhead."

The second film he did, "Good Night, Good Luck" was in my opinion the best movie of the ones nominated for best picture. It was thinking man's movie.

If you watch it, notice how Murrow addressed his audience's intelligence. It is so much different than today.

As to Clooney's politics in the case of "Good Night, Good Luck", they are insignificant.

I don't think there is any doubt that McCarthey and Cohn were wrong. What they did was un-American and should be something that all Americans (Republicans and Democrats) should be against.

If you don't feel that way, then what did you go to war for?

In my opinion, we have no business fighting wars in the name of the American way if we are not willing to protect it internally.
